This year, the Roaring Fork Valley celebrates the one-hundredth anniversary of the Bauhaus design school. Wednesday, locals have the chance to hear from the architect of a new museum in Weimar, Germany, where the Bauhaus was born.
The Bauhaus Museum Weimar is a minimalist concrete structure that embodies the Bauhaus principles of simple, functional design.
German architect Heike Hanada will speak about designing the museum, which opened this spring.
While she’s in Aspen, Hanada is also teaching a Bauhaus-inspired Teen Design Studio at the Aspen Art Museum. Teens will unveil their projects at a special art show on Friday.
Hanada’s lecture begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Aspen Art Museum.
